Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Lunch & Learn

Celebrating Diverse Perspectives at the Waisman Center
ABOUT THE EVENT
Working alongside and hearing from a diverse group of people, including those with lived experience of disability as an individual and/or family member, enriches our work as the Waisman Center. Come together to learn and discuss how equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts fit into the history and future of the center.
Hear from a panel of four staff members with lived experience of disability who will share their insights into what the Waisman Center mission means to them, what helps community-academic partnerships go well, and what they think the coming years of progress on equity, diversity and inclusion look like for people with disabilities and their families.
